the commander in chief ball tonight. president and mrs. obama dancing first together and then with a member of the air force and a member of the marines, with a chest full of medals. to al green, as sung by jennifer hudson. i'm duty-bound to inform you that the first lady's gown is by jason wu, and her shoes are by jimmy choo. i know i sound ridiculous saying that, but you know you wanted to hear it. this ball is specifically for members of the united states military and their families. it is a tradition that was started under president george w. bush. they have expand it this year to be larger than it has ever been. it's essentially doubled in size. there are two official inaugural balls, two only in washington tonight. one of them is the commander in chief ball. and the other of them is the other official inaugural ball. thanks for being with us on what is kind of a big day in washington. you know the basics of what happened today. church service at st. john's house near the white house. the president goes from the white house then to the capitol, then he is sworn in at the capit

example president obama's inaugural address this week. conservatives of course were outraged that it was such a liberal speech. liberals were delighted that it was such a liberal speech. and everybody agreed that it was such a profoundly liberal speech that the president gave for his second inaugural address. and it wasn't just liberal in the abstract. it was liberal in the specific, in the sense that he proposed and endorsed a whole bunch of liberal policy ideas. like for example, his endorsement in the speech of marriage equality. it was a big moment in the speech, right? because no president had ever talked about gay people before, ever before in any inaugural address. it was also a landmark thing for this president, who did not publicly support same-sex marriage rights until well into his time being president. but there it was right in the inaugural address, calling for marriage equality. right there in the inaugural address. that is freaking liberal. also, that is the majority view held by most americans. the nbc/"wall street journal" poll that came out last month polled on same-sex

that. >> so moving forward with a second obama term, any reason to believe that wall street is going to be held accountable? >> time is running out. when i talk to the fbi, had the clear sense the game was over. now statute of limitations is running. although there are some instances where it extends as much as ten years. so there is still time to prosecute. and just recently, we've seen the new york attorney general file a lawsuit against jpmorgan, bear stearns for fraud. they didn't name individuals. they didn't target individuals. and it's a civil case. but the attorney general, eric sneiderman thinks that perhaps there could be in the future some criminal charge s brought. but we haven't seen it yet. >> this could be the tip of the iceberg, this documentary. it's going to be an eye-opener to a lot of people. a lot of people will be wondering why no one is in jail. martin smith, we'll have you back after this plays a few times. i think you'll get a loft lot of reaction out of it. that's "the ed show." the rachel maddow show starts right now. >> good evening, my friend. it was really

. and michelle obama i think has had a harder time burying the hatchet than president obama has. this was a very tough race in 2008. but what is interesting is that they seem to have some chemistry in that interview. it wasn't a kind of formal stiff -- >> it was pretty smooth, pretty natural. >> they had a connection with each other that was important for the country to see. >> all right, jonathan alter, great to have you with us. thank you so much. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. and rachel maddow of "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> good evening, and thank you. >> you bet. >> thanks to you at home for staying with us this hour. the 50th state in the united states is of course hawaii. 49th state admitted the year before, alaska. so those were 49 and 50. those are the last two states admitted to the union in 1958 and 1959. what was the last state admitted before then? before alaska and hawaii, the last state admitted in the contiguous united states, the last state admitted on the big part of the map? that was arizona. arizona was the 48th state. it was not admitted t

obama agenda forward? i've got to do a lot more on it tomorrow night. rachel? >> i'm looking forward to it. thank you at home for joining us this hour. on a day when you probably should have taken the day off and just watched the news all day. if you did not do that today, it's okay. this hour we will get you all caught up. but this is one of those days when i had to turn off the speakers on my computer on my desk at work because the buzzer that i have set to go off every time a top tier breaking news alert crosses the wires started to seem like it was just stuck on, it was sounding so often today. it was that kind of day. so we'll have updates for you this howerton riveting turn on capitol hill from secretary of state hillary clinton today. and remember the debt ceiling thing that everybody has been fighting about for months. that finally happened today. the stealth story that we have been covering about republicans in the states changing the rules for presidential elections to make it harder for democratic candidates to win, that story moved forward today in a big way, and is getti

be noted that it matches almost word for word the exact immigration proposal that president obama made in a big speech in el paso back in the spring of 2011. president obama is due to announce his own ideas on this subject tomorrow. we can guess if he meant what he said in el paso, that what he says tomorrow will very closely mirror what the senators laid out today, presumably with the exception of this one absolutely indefensible, bizarre "please the republicans" clause. this is an incremental centrist consensus lift of reforms, which any reasonable understanding of how washington works, this should be totally viable. should be. but of course this isn't political science. this is our real washington. and that means it has to go through the house too, where mark my words, watch. the jan brewer clause will be the only part of this thing that they like. joining us now is e.j. dionne. it's great to see you. >> good to be here. >> it naive for me to think this might be possible? >> i don't think so at all. and thank god you didn't ask me about the headlessness issue. i think we saw to

considered in virginia, michigan, ohio, pennsylvania, and wisconsin, instead of obama winning 332-206, the electoral map would have gone from blue to red, romney over obama. >> as this story goes national, as this story gets national attention and goes sort of big-time as news goes, republicans in the states that have been pushing this plan seem to be getting a little embarrassed. in florida, the previously unembarrassable florida, where rick scott backed off the early vote long lines disaster just last week, the republican speaker of the florida house now says no way are they going to do this electoral college rig the vote thing. do not pin that tail on him. quote, to me that's like saying in a football game we should only have three quarters because we were winning after three quarters and they beat news the fourth. i don't think we need to change the rules of the game. i think we need to get better. okay. it looks like it's going nowhere in florida. how about virginia, where republicans moved a bill to act on this change earlier in the week? well, in virginia, two crucial repub
